Habeas, deportation and strip searches on SCOTUS docket this week

Despite a short work week, there is a good bit of criminal procedure on the SCOTUS docket as the Court closes out its October sitting.   Via SCOTUSblog, here are the basics:

10-637, Greene v. Fisher: For purposes of adjudicating a state prisoner's petition for federal habeas relief, what is the temporal cutoff for whether a decision from this Court qualifies as clearly established Federal law under 28 U.S.C. ยง 2254(d), as amended by the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996?

10-694, Judulang v. Holder: Whether a lawful permanent resident who was convicted by guilty plea of an offense that renders him deportable and excludable under differently phrased statutory subsections, but who did not depart and reenter the United States between his conviction and the commencement of removal proceedings, is categorically foreclosed from seeking discretionary relief from removal under former Section 212(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

10-945, Florence v. Board of Freeholders: Whether the Fourth Amendment permits a jail to conduct a suspicionless strip search whenever an individual is arrested, including for minor offenses.
